When it comes to particle count, many laboratories aren’t ISO 14644 registered. Poorly planned and managed labs can unintentionally result in unseen hazards, from areas that are hard to access for cleaning to dirt traps which provide homes for bacteria to thrive and grow.
Sue Springett, commercial manager of Teknomek, discussed how you get to clean your labspace in three straightforward and cost-effective ways:
Lab furniture that support a hygienic environment
Your lab furniture can have concealed ledges, ridges and inaccessible corners that can be potential dangerous harbourage points for organisms. Opting for storage furniture that are covered with sloping ledges or choosing mobile furniture are helpful. If you have large pieces of equipment, have a removable case around to make cleaning easier.
Paramount to the operation and productivity of your lab is keeping it a clean and safe environment for your lab staff to work in.
